Tackling market abuse has long been a priority of the FCA and the FSA before it. However, in recent years there has been a noticeable decline in the number of successful civil market abuse cases brought by the FCA, with only two public outcomes published in 2014/15 (a drop of 88% from the number of public market abuse outcomes published by the FCA in 2010/11). But this decline may be short-lived. A recent set of FCA Board minutes indicate that the FCA has a number of market abuse cases in the pipeline.
